: it was founded to promote liberty and economic freedom, starting in san francisco, and then move into washington, d.c. milton friedman admitted the kindle institute has never sold out. we still work for liberty and freedom. i've been working with the cato institute since 1995 and full time since 2007. host: mary, fort washington, maryland. democrat. caller: i would suggest thinking that if you follow all of the problems come at the end of the trail you will find the smiling grin of greed. that is what i think caused it. for myself, naca program helped us, taking us out of the ugly arm. my mortgage is $964 a month, which will allow us to stay in our home comfortably. guest: people blame things like a financial crisis on greed, but greed is not changing. it has been with us for hundreds of thousands of years. people are greedy naturally. if we design institutions assuming people are altruistic, we will get hurt. we have to assume they are greedy, and if there altruistic, we will only benefit from that. we assume that people want to live in their own home, and give people a choice, buying or rentin
is mentioning in all of these tragic shootings, including the law office in san francisco, they were all gone- free calzones. -- gun-free kill zones. the gun is not the common denominator, but these allow any madman or criminal with any kind of fire arm to come in and shoot as many law-abiding americans as he can. this proves not that the gun is the problem but that gun-control itself is a failure because there is no stronger form of gun control than to say no one is allowed to have a gun at all. otherhat's exactly the common denominator for all of these tragic occurrences. not one person in the mainstream media has pointed it out to their viewers because it does not sit with their anti-bond big it should -- anti-gun bigotted nature. it is being marketed shamelessly in the mainstream media. i swear these people are trying to introduce a new form of bigotry and to american culture. gun-control is the new racism. cnn in particular should be ashamed of itself for what it has done this week on trying to manipulate and inflame the prejudices against guns and gun owners. it's despicable and it's a
, the gentlewoman from san francisco, and the minority leader, i'm delighted that she came down to engage us on this very important issue. the gentlewoman does recognize and know that the house on august 1, in fact, did exactly what she has suggested that they, and that is to take action on what the future tax rates would be in this country. and on a bipartisan basis, 256 -171, this house of representatives said, let's understand that now is a bad time to raise taxes on the american people. and let's extend for a period of time all the tax cuts which allow america to keep working. we passed it 256-171. mr. speaker, i'd like to ask unanimous consent that i insert into the record a chart that exists on the house budget committee that shows the choice of the futures, and what future was presented, if i could -- thank you very much. this slide that i've got that's on the house budget committeele is essentially about the current pathway the president would choose as outlined in his budget that the gentlewoman, ms. pelosi, spoke of that got no votes in the united states senate. not one vote. no vo
supported. nancy pelosi from san francisco, senator charles shumer, the chief messaging man in the senate, democratics caucus, have supported that threshold. people from wealthier districts and states -- in states tend to see the middle class differently than from other areas where cost of living is lower. >> that strategy, that support, rather, part of speaker boehner's strategy knowing he has built in support from senators and others? >> i don't know if i would call it built in support but it certainly causes a controversy or a possible split among the democrats. so it is an interesting tactic, a great chess move probably. but the thing is how many republicans consider boehner get onboard. we covered the caucus meeting -- conference meeting, rather, this morning in the capitol basement and i'd say members are kind of dazed and confused about this plan. many are looking for details. hardcore conservatives immediately rejecting it. people close to leadership voicing support. they called an emergency meeting at 5:00 p.m. today, the whole conference, to discuss details and try to advance th
, the weather there. they have done that a little better -- there is a "san -- a san addition francisco bay area. the chicago is still in the works. and texas addition. that is not right -- i'd just said that one. a race that. san francisco, chicago, and one in texas. they are localizing. they can not localize it in many other places. they could do it in atlanta, with in miami. those of you who read the "iht" no it is sometimes localized. the "times" is trying to survive, basically. there are many ways it might survive. they issue, of course, extremely optimistic financial reports -- it will get better and it will get better. that leads me to my final lloydce -- to " northcliffe, who own "of the london times" and "the daily mail," -- somewhere someone is trying to suppress the real story. the rest is advertising. what i try to do in my book is separate the real story from advertising. thank you. [applause] we're going to have a q&a. the c-span person is going to walk around. do not start talking until he gets there. if you want to be on c-span -- you raise your hand. would anybody like to ask me
. [laughter] buddhism and its nonviolent -- the san francisco has been a leader for supporting democracy in burma and in supporting aung san suu kyi. buddhism and its non-violence tradition has been a source of strength for the nonviolent democracy movement in burma. but aung san suu kyi has seen her supporters beaten, tortured and killed. she has never responded with hatred and violence. she has asked only for peaceful dialogue and progress for democracy. she has always believed that the need for democracy for all the people of burma was more important than her personal need. indeed, she made great personal sacrifices in terms of her own family as senator feinstein pointed out. one admirer described her as a seeker, a seoul pilgrim, one that makes her life a vehicle for a deeper awakening to truth. aung san suu kyi walks in the footsteps of her beloved father and the giants of history. for her personal sacrifice, for her inner strength, for her love of burma and its people, and for being an example of strength and courage to the world, today we are proud to honor her with the congressio

"reguaranteeless of politics." sam in san francisco, go ahead. >> i'm hoping that at some point the society will start addressing the root causes of this. i remember when columbine first happened and it was shocking for people. now this is happening basically every day. so many people are unemployed, the political system is not functioning, our media is not doing their job and people want to talk a defending themselves. what about addressing the root causes? the fact that society -- we don't even address mental health issues. they don't even address the mental health issues of the soldiers coming home. they encourage them not sign up. they deny them benefits, i think it takes a year to deny benefits for a returning soldier. >> no indications that the shooter was a veteran. we take a live look at the flag above the white house which has been lowered to half staff as ordered by the president. this is michael. hi, there. >> hi. i want to extend our families condolences to the families out there in connecticut. i just hugged my daughter and she has -- she is a kindergartener herself so we can f
